It's about money, not patient

Went in for chronic nasal drip. He did quick examination and wanted to see down my throat so he pulls out his toys that he can charge as "surgery". (It was just a tube that goes down the nasal cavity to throat.) The visit cost over $600 for a 15 minute rushed examination. He didn't see anything but then gave me antibiotics anyway. (So why do "surgery" if it doesn't change diagnosis?) Total rip-off. He's not worth $100/hour never mind $2400/hour. Staff was rude too and zero follow-up.

Brusque manner, didn't listen

Went in with an ear infection and cough. The doctor spent less than 10 minutes with me, charged a huge fee and did not do a complete exam. I am still experiencing the same symptoms and am looking for a new doctor.
